Act for Mood & Anxiety

The goal of an ACT (Acceptance & Commitment Therapy) group is to help participants create a rich, full, and meaningful life, while accepting the pain that inevitably goes with it. In this six session group, participants will learn psychological skills to handle painful thoughts and feelings effectively, in order to reduce their impact and influence. In ACT, we set out to fundamentally transform our relationship to thoughts and feelings by using core processes such as acceptance and mindful choice. We will also help participants clarify what’s truly important and meaningful to them (values) and use that knowledge to guide and motivate life-enriching action.
